  • 1 lb ground beef, pork or chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 onion, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, finely chopped

  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup dried acini de pepe pasta
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped


  • In a large bowl, mix ingredients for meatballs then form into 1-inch round meatballs.
  • Turn Instant Pot to saute mode. Add olive oil, then meatballs, sauteeing for 7-8 minutes until browned. Add the rest of the ingredients to Instant Pot in the order in which they are listed except for wine, parmesan cheese and spinach, ensuring pasta is underneath the broth.
  • Place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal. Press the pressure cook button and set to high, then cook for 5 minutes. Instant Pot will take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure then pressure cook for 5 minutes.
  • Do a quick release of the pressure on the Instant Pot by flicking the switch at the top with a spoon. Open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily.
  • Stir in wine, parmesan cheese and spinach. Garnish with extra parmesan cheese, then serve and enjoy!
